    Default Hello from me and Ignatius


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello there I lurked these forums for info while i was thinking about getting a leopard gecko and decided to join after getting my first one his name is Ignatius and he is an 8 month old Tangerine HET rainwater morph.



    Ignatius is my first leopard gecko and he is doing well so far eating crickets and meal worms (i would feed dubias but alas i live in florida and they are illegal) had his first shed since i got him a week ago with no stuck shed which made me really happy because he isn't a fan of handling yet.

    His tank is a little bare atm but i'm hoping to get some more decorations for him later (some fake plants or something)

    Welcome to you and Ignatius!

    It's a bit difficult to see. Have you 3 hides: warm dry, warm moist, & cool dry? What dimensions is his home?

    I hope you enjoy your leo. Let us know if we can help.

    Your leo is lucky!

    Can you provide some logs and rocks? Additional cage furniture will be a plus.

    Let me "mention" you in a separate thread where member Curt Hatt mentions slate coasters he recently purchased via Amazon.

    You're very welcome, Gutler! I think those slate coasters look nice too.

    Question is it normal for your leopard gecko to decide its cool hide should be its bathroom as well?

    They will go where they decide to go...mine has gone on top of his hides but not inside. I would try to use a reptile safe cleaner to clean the spot inside the hide. They may yet decide to go elsewhere in the hide. Sometimes the spots can vary or change. You could also try leaving the stool for a little bit in another area more suitable. Perhaps the remaining scent may encourage them to go there again. But in the end...they make the call.
